Planned Gifts

Charitable Remainder Trust

An important method of benefiting a charitable cause is to bequest a specific sumof money or property in your will. For those with the ability to do so, a gift of appreciated property, such as stock or real estate, offers the most advantage to donors.

Charitable Lead Annuity Trust

Donors may also consider creating a Charitable Lead Annuity Trust. This trust will make annual payments to The Eye Cancer Foundation for a fixed number of years (the life of the trust, typically 10, 15, or 20 years) with the remainder passing on to descendants or to a trust for their benefit. This gifting technique benefits the charity by providing income and it benefits descendants by allowing equity to be passed to them with less gift tax liability.

For more information please contact The Eye Cancer Foundation Development Department. We are happy to assist donors and advisors in structuring their gift

Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly
